Is eating pussy good for you?

How Eating Pussy Could Be Good for Your Health

By now you should know that the vagina is home to billions of bacteria. The official term for this genital ecosystem is the vaginal microbiome, but I like to think of it as my personal Pussy Posse. Only instead of massaging the ego of Leonardo DiCaprio, the vaginal microbiome prevents bad bacteria from blossoming and taking over your cooch. Seventy percent of vaginas are dominated by one species of Lactobacillus, which produce lactic acid and keep things at a pH level of 4.5 down there.

You know where else Lactobacillus exists? Your gut. Your gut bacteria are often referred to as probiotics. These flora may affect everything—from digestion to allergies to eczema to Alzheimer’s—and as the research piles up on the importance of gut bacteria, the marketplace is being flooded with items that will allegedly help regulate your personal intestinal rainforest. Probiotics are being added to foods like yogurt, but also to things like shampoo and shaving cream.

But I can’t help but feel like we’re missing an easy lifehack here. If the vagina is full of good bacteria, and people are eating as much good bacteria as they can, why not just eat a bunch of vagina?

If the vagina is full of good bacteria, and people are eating as much good bacteria as they can, why not just eat a bunch of vagina?

To be a useful probiotic, vaginal fluid would have to contain enough good bacteria to make an effect, defined in Canada and Italy as one billion colony-forming units (CFUs) per serving. On top of that, the bacteria would have to travel safely to the lower intestine (where good bacteria dwells) without getting obliterated by stomach acid.

How much bacteria is in a serving of pussy? Furthermore, what would constitute a serving? According to Dr. Mendes-Soares, there are about 100,000 to 100 million Lactobacillus cells per gram of vaginal fluid. So for one face-humping session to have probiotic properties, the humpee would have to swallow between ten and 10,000 grams (10 kg) of vaginal fluid. One of those seems doable. The other, less so.

Let’s assume you have one of the more verdant microbial rainforests, and your partner only needs to slurp down ten grams. How can we be sure those ten grams make it to the lower intestine intact? A 2005 study showed that the presence of glucose in the gastric juices helps protect Lactobacilli as they travel down the GI tract. Pussy fluid is not known for its glucose content. But eating food shortly before eating other stuff could provide the needed sugars in the gastric juices. Lactobacilli is naturally acid resistant, and could potentially make it from the mouth to the gut even without a glucose buffer.

However, another problem that arises with getting one’s probiotics in the wild is the issue of contamination. Going down on someone, “there would also be a transmission of the other current members of the community,” says Mendes-Soares, “both the beneficial and harmful ones.” Meaning, one could be getting Lactobacilli as well as other harmful bacteria. There is also the normal threat of STIs to consider.

For some people, the problematic part of the phrase “probiotic pussy” is the probiotic part. In a 2009 blog post, infectious disease doctor and podcaster Mark Crislip was highly skeptical of the entire probiotic industry. One of his main complaints was that the species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium found in probiotics are not necessarily the same species that exist in the human body. On that count, vaginal fluid has Activia beat. We know it’s the same kind of bacteria found in the human body, because it was found on a human body. We’re going straight to the source.

The jury is still out on whether probiotics are as useful as Jamie Lee Curtis would have you believe. There is plenty of scientific evidence that probiotics can have an effect on Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diarrhea caused by antibiotics, and other gastrointestinal problems. But we don’t have the same amount of evidence that taking probiotics offers long-term health benefits that could extend your life. Preliminary studies have been done on whether Lactobacillus can help with cholesterol. This could be huge, as heart disease is the number-one killer in America. The results are promising, but studies concluded that more research was needed.

Something the pro-probiotics and anti-probiotics people can agree on: Probiotics only stay in your system if you’re regularly re-upping your supply. Like anything in your diet, pussy will only confer health benefits if you eat it regularly.

Does vaginal fluid have any medical benefit for males?

Yes. Sexual fluids carry multiple bio-regulating chemical structures that can increase both physical and psychological wellbeing.

Ingestion is the most common way to receive benefit, but even contact with mucuous membranes can prompt positive reactions.

And, on the other hand, bodily fluids and intimate contact can spread disease and cause other problems, so it is a mixed bag and caution is in order.

Futher:

Ear wax, semen, male and female sexual lubrication, snot, and many other human excretions can have selective health benefits in the right circumstances, especially with relation to things like immune regulation, digestion, and mood. This is because humans are living systems with balances of internal organisms and regenerative processes.

In Relationships:

Practically speaking, ingestion of vaginal lubrication would probably only approach sustained and meaningful benefit if regularly consumed at least 3-5 days a week (even if just in very small amounts) and only consumed from one female for the duration. Modifying your physiology using the feedback system created between multiple individuals in proximity or shared bio-environments often entails restricting your interactions with other external factors or individuals that might conflict with the potential direction being taken with your initial pairing (or whatever the arrangement may be).

Sharing between multiple persons on a regular basis could still potentially have benefit, but the balance would be more dynamic and less scrutable. The resulting system would be a bit less interdependent due to the complexity, especially given how each individual partner will have differing homeostatic values and varying content of secretions across days and weeks.

The benefits, or methods of obtaining ideal benefit, might be different for each gender (due to our repective natural hormonal states and processing preferences regarding introduced biomaterials), and genes also play a role in what can benefit who ideally. Other factors exist, but I don’t know if you were going for an exhaustive explanation (and this is not something exhaustively researched anyhow).

Even being in a relationship at all changes your biological functioning on the hormonal level (whether it is sexually expressive or not, and even in long distance romance), so a lot of benefit stems from how you contextualize your interactions mentally.

I am not a doctor, but I have studied psychosexual therapy and the science behind sexual interactions on a layman’s basis.

Why Eating Pussy is Good For You

Take it from the ORIGINAL dating coach — you DON’T need any “pickup lines” or canned material to EFFORTLESSLY attract any woman you want. Watch this free video now to learn what the “pickup artists” & “seduction gurus” don’t want you to know…

I remember when I was a kid.

Every Saturday night my parents would have their friends over to the house.

I didn’t pay much attention to my mom’s hot friend, until I started building up testosterone and started liking girls.

My mother’s friends were super hot.

I used to go down there, after The Love Boat would finish. They didn’t like Fantasy Island. And I would go down and talk to my mom’s friend. And I’ve got to tell you something. They were the greatest.

I remember I was dating my girlfriend my senior year of high school. She wouldn’t sleep with me. She was young. A senior. But we were doing everything but. I literally was eating her pussy. Put it in no better terms. Non-stop. You see my mom’s friends told me that if I please a woman, if I’m good at foreplay, if I know how to eat pussy then women are going to want to have sex with me. Women are going to come back and ask for more, literally, beg for more. If I sacrifice my own needs and desires, and eat pussy.

I can’t put it any other way. I love eating pussy.

It’s actually one of my favorite things to do.

I think it’s so much fun. To be able to have that much control over a woman. To be able to do what I can do with my mouth and my tongue. I literally get addicted to it. When I’m in a relationship with a woman, all I want to do when we have sex, is eat her pussy. I want to please her, I want to make her feel great, I want to make her cum hard, and I want to understand exactly what she needs. But, there is so many guys that won’t eat pussy.

I’ve met a lot of you. I’ve met you at the boot camps, I’ve met you at coaching, and you’re missing out on one of the greatest things in the world. You see, when you don’t eat pussy, to put it in no better terms, a woman is really not going to want to do much to you. Why the hell should she go down and blow your stanky ass dick?

Your dick is hanging out and sweating next to your balls all day long, why does she need to put that in your mouth? If you’re not willing to do something for her why would she do something for you? You see, a woman craves dick when you go and you give her what she needs. You want to literally be able to go and unleash a sexual naughty girl. And you’re not going to do it just with the powers of your dick. You see, a lot of women need foreplay in order to warm up the microwave.

And if you’re not going down on her, making her hot, making her feel hot, making her feel great, lubricating her, making her feel even better, and getting her to cum, she could care less how good your dick is.

So, for those of you that fear eating pussy, you probably don’t even know what a good blowjob is.
I’m sure you’ve gotten blowjobs in your life, and I’m sure you’ve thought they were good. I’ve got to tell you, you don’t know what a great blowjob is until you work wonders with her. When you eat her pussy, get her to cum, make her feel unbelievable, she is going to literally suck you like an electrolux, looking for every piece of dirt and dust in the carpet.

She is going to make you feel good. She is going to bring you to your knees and literally make you beg. I’ve had some of the most amazing blowjobs. As a matter of fact, I’m never lacking in the department in any relationship because I don’t give lack to a woman when it comes down to sex.

So if you truly really want, and I’m appealing to your male mind right now, a great, fantastic blowjob, then you better, better learn how to eat pussy, because it is one of the greatest things you can do to a woman. For those of you who think women smell down there, or anything else, I barely have met a woman that smells. Sure, if a woman is too much of a drinker, she could stink a little bit, like she’s baking bread down there. She can get a little yeasty, but most of the time, women are very clean down there. Especially if they know that you’re willing to go down on her. So it’s time you started eating pussy and really enjoying it.

8 Health Benefits of Sex

By

Elizabeth Beasley Was this helpful? (337)

Sexual activity is more than just a fun way to physically connect with your partner and yourself. Sex provides serious health benefits for both men and women. If you need an excuse to get it on, here are eight reasons you should be “getting healthy” several times a week.

1. Ups Your Feel-Good Factor

A study of older adults by The New England Journal of Medicine found that people who are in a loving relationship and have sex regularly tend to rate their health as “very good” or “excellent.” Sex simply makes you feel healthier and in turn, healthier people seem to have sex more often.

2. Stops Pain With Pleasure

Researchers at Rutgers saw a 40% increase in pain tolerance for women during vaginal self-stimulation. Because your body releases the natural painkilling hormone oxytocin during orgasm, you might try opting for pleasure instead of pain medication to relieve headaches, back pain and menstrual cramps.

3. Kisses Colds and Flu Goodbye

The health benefits of sex are nothing to sneeze at. A regular romp leads to a robust immune system, which is a big turn-off for viruses and other bugs. One study of students at Wilkes-Barre University in Pennsylvania discovered that students who had sex a few times a week had 30% higher levels of salivary immunoglobulin A (IgA), an antibody that fights disease and protects you from colds and flu.

4. Eases Endometriosis

Timing is another key factor in improving your health with sexual activity. Yale University researchers report that getting intimate while you are menstruating lessens risk for endometriosis, a disorder in which endometrial tissue grows in areas outside of the uterus. The study revealed that uterine contractions resulting from orgasm might help clear the uterus of menstrual fluid and reduce chances of developing this condition.

5. Helps Wounds Heal

A unique study on how psychological stress affects wound healing demonstrates how sex can help patch up more than your relationship. Couples were given blisters and then monitored while they were doing supportive activities versus having stressful marital discussions. The positive interaction helped their blisters heal twice as fast as when they were arguing. Apparently, a loving, sexual encounter may actually heal all wounds. (At least it can’t hurt to try.)

6. Makes Your Heart Happy

A report in the American Journal of Cardiology proposes that good loving keeps your ticker ticking longer. Results from a 16-year study, the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, showed that men who engaged in sex twice a week reduced their risk of cardiovascular disease by 50%.

7. Reduces Risk of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer research at Harvard has great news for men. Scientists have found solid evidence frequent ejaculation leads to a lower risk of prostate cancer. Men who ejaculated 21 or more times a month reduced their risk by 33%, in comparison to guys who only experienced 4-7 ejaculations a month.

8. Gives Men a Reason to Live (Longer)

Feeling great and healing faster are big bonuses, but one of the most exciting health benefits of sex is it can help you live a happy life for a lot longer. This is especially true for the guys. In fact, a study reported by the British Medical Journal found that men who had frequent orgasms had a death rate 50% lower than men who didn’t ejaculate often.

The biggest lesson learned from all of this research? Staying sexually active (with a partner or alone) is essential to a well-balanced life of good health and happiness. So put it on your calendar, right next to exercising and taking your vitamins, and create a wellness plan you can get excited about. If you have any sex-related symptoms or issues, don’t be shy about addressing them with your doctor. Both men and women have treatment options to help achieve healthy sex lives that last a lifetime.

21 reasons why you should have sex and the advantages to our health

You probably don’t need much convincing, but there’s quite a few health benefits to a healthy sex life.

So it might be time to share this with your loved one for National Sex Day (Saturday, June 9).

According to the latest studies, regular sex – that’s one to two lovemaking sessions per week – can provide some incredible boosts to your health and wellbeing.

There are quite a few benefits to having sex, from boosting fertility to looking young (yes that’s a thing), you even get healthier (sort of).

Here’s a break down of the best reasons to get your loved one between the sheets.

1. You look younger

Look younger the natural way (Image: Getty)

Dr David Weeks, clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, revealed to a psychology ­conference that his extensive research had found older men and women with an active love life looked five to seven years younger than their actual age.

But you don’t have to be at it every night to enjoy youth-enhancing effects! In fact, during his 10-year study, ­Weeks found quality was as important as quantity, with the ­anti-ageing benefits stronger if the sex was classed as “loving”.

2. Boost your fertility

This will sound like ­music to most men’s ears – studies have found that the more often you make love, the better quality your sperm will be.

Semen health was found to be best when sex had last occurred less than two days before the sperm was tested and was greatly decreased after 10 days of abstinence.

If you’re trying for a baby, keep sperm fresh and in tip-top shape by having sex at least twice a week, and not only around the time of the woman’s ovulation.

Frequent sex has also been found to help balance a woman’s hormones and regulate her periods, which can further boost chances of conceiving.

3. Fight colds and flu

Having sex once or twice a week has been found to raise your body’s levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A, or IgA, which can protect you from colds and flu. One study found people who have sex more than once a week have 30% higher levels of IgA than those who abstain.

4. Disease-proof your body

Having high levels of the natural steroid DHEA, known as “the anti-ageing hormone”, is believed to be key to keeping your body fitter for longer. During sex, DHEA is ­secreted throughout the body, and after an orgasm, the level in the bloodstream soars to five times its normal amount.

5. Lengthen your life

A study carried out in Australia found people who climaxed at least three times a week had a 50% lower chance of dying for any medical reason than those who only climaxed once a month.

6. Shift your middle-age spread and keep fit

Thirty minutes of vigorous sex burns up to 100 calories, which is the same as a small glass of wine.

And if you have moderately active sex twice a week, you’ll burn an extra 5,000 calories a year! ­

Varying your positions is also a great, fun way to tone different muscle groups and keep limbs lean and flexible.

7. Ease those nasty period cramps

Many women say period pain diminishes if they do the deed during a cramp attack.

One theory why is that muscle contractions that occur when you reach peak levels of excitement relieve tension in the muscles of your uterus – the ones that cause menstrual cramps – therefore easing the pain.

8. Helps lower your risk of incontinence

Good sex is a great workout for a woman’s pelvic floor muscles – the muscles that control ­orgasms and also stem the flow of urine, reducing leakage and incontinence.

Pregnancy and the menopause can weaken these muscles significantly, but the stronger they are, the lower your risk of developing stress incontinence and prolapse later.

And let’s face it, sex is far more ­enjoyable than the chore of doing pelvic floor exercises on your own!

9. Prevent a heart attack

Lots of studies have found that regular sex can ward off heart attacks, not bring them on as it was once feared.

One study at Queen’s University Belfast found that having sex three times a week could halve your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Another study in Israel found that women who had two orgasms a week were up to 30% less likely to have heart disease than those who did not enjoy sex or didn’t have an orgasm.

10. Increase your attractiveness to others

High sexual activity makes the body release more pheromones, chemicals that enhance your appeal to the opposite sex.

This is why the more sex you have with your partner, the stronger your desire will be to have sex with them again.

11. Smooth out your wrinkles

The hormone oestrogen is pumped out during sex, which can in turn have a plumping effect on the skin, helping to smooth out those fine lines.

This is especially useful following the menopause, when a woman’s skin can ­become drier and more wrinkled, as ­oestrogen levels naturally drop.

One American study found that menopausal women who had sex every week had ­oestrogen levels that were twice as high as their counterparts who abstained.

12. Give yourself an all-over healthy glow

According to ­research carried out at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, sex promotes skin renewal because it is an aerobic form of exercise.

The scientist behind this study found that vigorous sex pumps higher levels of oxygen around the body, increasing the flow of blood and nutrients to the skin, and pushes newer, fresher skin cells to the surface, making skin look healthier.

13. Improve your self-esteem

One of the most important benefits, noted in a recent survey undertaken by the University of Texas, US, was that participants who had sex regularly felt more confident about their bodies.

14. Lower your blood pressure

A Scottish study found men and women who had plenty of sex coped well with stress and had lower blood ­pressure than those who abstained. Researchers at Brigham Young ­University in the US also linked frequent intercourse to lower blood pressure.

15. Banish depression

Like any exercise that raises your heart rate, sex causes your brain to release feel-good chemicals that boost your levels of serotonin – the happy hormone – to lift your mood.

Serotonin is the body’s key antidepressant chemical and one of the major reasons people smile and feel happy and relaxed after sex.

Sexually active women in long-term ­relationships are also less likely to feel depressed than women who go without sex, according to a study of nearly 300 women by psychologist Gordon Gallup in the American Archives Of Sexual ­Behavior.

16. Cure that headache (yes, really!)

Yes it’s a thing (Image: Getty)

“Having a headache” might be an age-old excuse not to have sex, but the scientific evidence says that, to the contrary, sex can help shift pain!

This is because making love causes a surge in the “love” hormone ­oxytocin, plus other feel-good ­endorphins, which can ease pain.

Women have reported that their ­pain from both headaches and ­arthritis improved post-coitus.

17. Slash stress

In a study in the Psychology journal, ­researchers found that people who’d had sex in the last 24 hours coped better with stressful ­scenarios – such as public speaking – than those who had not.

Research has also shown that touching and cuddling during and after sex reduces the body’s levels of cortisol – the hormone that is secreted when you’re stressed.

18. Kick your insomnia into touch

It can help you get some zzzzs (Image: Getty)

The oxytocin released when you orgasm has another benefit – it can help you drop off, research claims.

Both men and women release this feel-good ­hormone just before ­orgasm, and as it courses through your system, it promotes relaxation and sleepiness.

So there is actually a genuine excuse for him to fall asleep so quickly after sex…

19. Strengthen your bones

As regular sex can boost oestrogen levels in post-menopausal women, it can offer some protection against the ­bone-thinning condition osteoporosis that is triggered by a lack of oestrogen.

And men can benefit too, as testosterone levels have been found to increase during and after sex, which can provide some protection against male osteoporosis.

20. Cut your risk of prostate cancer

Researchers at Nottingham University have found that men who enjoy a regular sex life in their 50s are at lower risk of developing prostate cancer.

This is because sex clears the prostate of toxins that could ­otherwise linger and trigger ­cancerous changes.

The link was first suggested after several studies showed that monks appeared to have a higher chance of developing prostate cancer.

21. Feel better all day

If you decide to go for a spot of morning passion to start your day, the boost to your mood it provides can continue right through until night-time, ­according to research.

The American scientist Dr Debby Herbenick found that adults who made love first thing in the morning were not only more upbeat for the rest of the day, but they also benefited from a stronger ­immune system than those people who simply opted for a cup of tea and some toast before ­heading out of the door.

In other words – why wait until tonight?

8 Surprising Health Benefits of Sex


As wonderful as sex is, not a lot of people realize what happens to your body when you have sex on a regular basis. Evolutionarily speaking, there is a reason that sex feels good, and it is not just to promote the procreation of the species. Our bodies actually benefit in many ways from regular intercourse, and in some cases – masturbation. I know, this is somewhat of an awkward topic, but we are all adults, right?
Buy an “Intelligence is sexy” t-shirt!

Sex is good for you, and here is why:

“Sexually active people take fewer sick days,” says sexual health expert Yvonne K. Fulbright, Ph.D.
Researchers at Wilkes University found that people who had sex regularly had a 30% increase in immunoglobulin A (IgA). IgA proteins act as antibodies by binding to pathogens when they first enter the body. IgA proteins then trigger the immune system to destroy those pathogens.

2. Libido

“Having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido,” says Lauren Streicher, MD.
Let’s face it: if you are having fun – you’ll want to do it more often. Spicing up your romantic activities, in general, can lead to more sex, which leads to more enjoyment, which leads to wanting to do the deed more often.

3. Heart Health

“One landmark study found that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure,” says Joseph J. Pinzone, MD.
According to research from the Queens University in Belfast, men who have sex three or more times a week cut their risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke by 50%.

4. Burns Calories

“Sex is a really great form of exercise. Like with exercise, consistency helps maximize the benefits,” says Joseph J. Pinzone, MD.

5. Pain Killer

“Orgasm can block pain. We’ve found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain, and many women have told us that genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache,” says Barry R. Komisaruk, PhD.
For women, in particular, the “big O” dumps a flood of oxytocin, also known as the love hormone, into your system. Oxytocin then triggers the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkiller. Research has also shown sex can lessen the aches associated with menstrual cramps while also helping to regulate a woman’s monthly cycle.

6. Prevents Cancer

Men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer during one study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The research was done by the National Cancer Institute, and showed that in a survey of 30,000 middle-aged men, those who averaged 21 ejaculations a month showed a 33 percent lower risk of prostate cancer than those with 4 to 7 ejaculations a month.

7. Sleep Aid

“After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness,” says Sheenie Ambardar, MD.
Prolactin is a complicated hormone that does everything from promoting lactation (as the name would suggest), to triggering sleep. One weird aspect of prolactin is that it has been shown to induce that “recovery stage” in men after an orgasm where their libido tapers off.

8. Reduces Stress

Sexual contact release your body’s natural “feel-good hormone.” Sexual arousal releases a brain chemical that revs up your brain’s pleasure and reward system.
This is again, from the oxytocin released by your body after you have an orgasm. Oxytocins reduces the levels of the hormone cortisol, which is associated with stress.

Many people supplement their diets with probiotics, but you can also find this type of ‘good bacteria’ in the human body — specifically in a woman’s vagina. Instead of shilling out for bougie probiotic yogurts or drinks, why not take a trip south of the border?

What’s up with that vaginal bacteria?

The vaginal ecosystem contains lactobacillus, a bacteria that grows to regulate vaginal pH, according to the Pharmabiotic Research Institute.

Lactobacilli produce lactic acid, keeping the pH in vaginal fluid at a healthy 4.5. Vaginal secretions typically contain Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus jensenii, Lactobacilus iners, Lactobacillus gasseri and can also contain Lactobacillus reuteri.

Recently, the company Order of Yoni brewed a beer that contained vaginal bacteria.

One woman even used her vaginal secretions to make yogurt, and described her culinary endeavor in a 2015 post on Motherboard.

Listen up, dudes (and ladies). These are the health benefits of eating pussy.

Lactobacillus is also present in your gut, where it is usually termed ‘probiotics,’ Broadly pointed out. Probiotics aid digestion, allowing good microorganisms to balance out your gastrointestinal system, according to Medical Daily.

Eating probiotics can prevent illness, the Cleveland Clinic reported. They can also boost your mood and help alleviate depression, according to Medical Daily. Sounds good, right?

Broadly asked the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Helena Mendes-Soares if it was possible to gain these benefits from giving a woman oral sex.

“I think it would be possible, but probably unlikely,” she said. “I don’t know of any study that addressed it.”

Some people even believe that probiotics you can buy over the counter aren’t particularly beneficial because they aren’t the same species as natural bacteria present in the body. “Compared to the complexity of the GI microenvironment, probiotics contain just a few bacteria, and not even the most common bowel organisms. It is safe to say that the “good” bacteria so highly touted in probiotics are but a minor constituent of a complex flora,” Mark Crislip, an infectious disease doctor and probiotic critic, wrote.

Why not go the natural route?

Dr. Mendes-Soares explained that a gram of vaginal fluid contains 100,000 to 100 million Lactobacillus cells, depending on the woman. In order to reap the health benefits of probiotics, one would have to swallow between “ten and 10,000 grams (10 kg) of vaginal fluid,” Broadly reported. Hey, it’s worth a shot.

It’s worth noting that a serving of lady juice doesn’t just contain helpful nutrients, but can also transmit harmful bacteria and STIs, so it never hurts for both partners to get tested before going down.

Receiving oral sex also has health perks.

As ATTN: has previously reported, the female orgasm also benefits your mental and physical health. An orgasm releases oxytocin, dopamine, and endorphins, which elevate your mood and can even alleviate pain — if you’re feeling period cramps, take note.

Does your vagina really need a probiotic?

The marketing appears to be ahead of the science when it comes to vaginal probiotics.

Published: July, 2019

Probiotics are everywhere these days, in drinks, pills, and powders, and marketers are suggesting that you need to take them not only for your gut — but also for your vagina.

Many women are heeding the message, says Dr. Caroline Mitchell, assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive biology at Harvard Medical School. Vaginal probiotic supplements are hugely popular. This includes both probiotic pills and suppository capsules that are inserted into the vagina using an applicator.

Inside Out: The 15 Best Foods To Feed Your Vagina

Source: PeopleImages / Getty

Ladies, for a healthy, feel-good, orgasm-rich vagina, it starts with your diet. This healthy diet allows your vagina to sensitive when it needs to be and be healthy inside and out for your and your partner. Here’s 15 foods you need to be eating:

1. Sweet Potatoes

Not only are sweet potatoes a delicious alternative to traditional potatoes, they are also incredibly #effective in the maintaining of good vaginal health.

They are filled to the brim with Vitamin A, and this is a vitamin that contributes to making our uterine walls super strong, as well as encouraging the production of hormones that help us stay energized.

You might not have to alter your eating habits much as most of the foods that help keep your vagina healthy you should be eating as part of a healthy balanced diet anyway.

2. Lemon

Lemons also support vaginal health as their acidic nature helps maintain the vagina’s healthy pH level. Antioxidants in it also help protect the cells from free-radical damage.

In addition, it works as an immune booster to help your body prevent and fight any kind of infection.

Drink lemon water once or twice daily to help restore the pH balance in your body. To make lemon water, mix the juice of ½ lemon to a glass of warm water and add a little raw honey for taste.

3. Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice is great for improving your vaginal health. It helps balance the vagina’s pH level and its acidic property helps fight bacteria that cause UTIs, vaginal infections and other problems.

To reap the benefits, drink a glass of unsweetened, organic cranberry juice daily. Those who like the tart flavor can even eat a handful of cranberries daily. You can opt to take cranberry tablets, but consult your doctor first.

4. Garlic

You’d think garlic would have the opposite effect you’d want (smelly), but on the contrary, garlic is great for down there. Garlic contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties that help prevent vaginal problems, such as itching, burning, odor, vaginal discharge and even UTIs.

It also boosts the immune system, so that your body is ready to fight off any infection.

Eat 2 to 3 raw garlic cloves on a daily basis. You can also add garlic or its paste to your dishes and salads. If you prefer to take garlic capsules, consult your doctor first.

5. Kale

To combat vaginal dryness as well as itching and burning, include kale and other low-oxalate green vegetables in your diet.

Kale is a rich source of vitamins A and C and helps improve blood circulation. In addition, it gives a boost to your immunity to help keep infections at bay.

Add kale to your salad, vegetable juice or green smoothie. You can also cook it lightly and eat it as a side dish. Other green vegetables that are good for vaginal health include cabbage, celery and collard green.

6. Greek Yogurt

Eating Greek yogurt daily is great for maintaining vaginal health. It contains live and active cultures (Lactobacillus bacteria) that prevent disease-causing organisms from attaching to the vagina and produce chemicals like lactic acid that inactivate or kill other infection-causing organisms. It also helps maintain healthy pH levels in the body.

According to a 2014 study published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics journal, lactobacilli help maintain normal urogenital health and play a key role in preventing bacterial vaginosis, yeast vaginitis, UTIs and sexually transmitted diseases.

Eat 1 to 2 cups of probiotic yogurt daily. Other good probiotic foods that you can include in your diet are miso, kimchi, sauerkraut and kefir.

7. Edamame

The phytoestrogens in this soy product help keep the vagina lubricated, which is very important to prevent dryness, itching and other problems. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids, protein and several vitamins and minerals that help your body cope with premenstrual as well as menopausal symptoms.

Aim for consuming ½ cup of organic, unprocessed edamame on a daily basis. Other soy products that you can include in your diet are soybeans, soymilk, tofu and so on.

8. Flaxseeds

Rich in phytoestrogens and high in omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseeds can also combat many vaginal issues. The phytoestrogens increase estrogen levels, which prevents vaginal dryness and other menopausal symptoms.

In addition, the zinc in these seeds help treat vaginal dryness, itching and burning.

Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds on cereal, smoothies, yogurt, salads and juices. When eating flaxseeds, make sure to drink an ample amount of water for smooth digestion.

9. Water

Your vagina is a mucus surface, same as the inside of your mouth, so the better hydrated you are, the better hydrated those membranes are going to be,” Lindsay told BuzzFeed. And while some strong-smelling foods can translate into a stronger-smelling vagina, water can help bring things back to whatever is normal for you. “If you’re concerned, you can drink water and that can dilute out what you might perceive to be a bad smell from the food

10. Avocado

Avocado is another food that stimulates vaginal health. The healthy fats in avocado support healthy vaginal walls and keep it naturally lubricated. This helps prevent vaginal dryness as well as itching and burning.

In addition, its vitamin B6 and potassium content support vaginal health.

Make sure to eat avocado in moderation. Just ¼ of an avocado daily is enough to reap its benefits. You can include this creamy fruit in your salad, sandwich or smoothie.

11. Candy

Yes, CANDY. Specifically the brand, Good N’ Plenty. In 1998, Dr. Alan Hirsch of the Smell & Taste Research and Treatment Foundation in Baltimore wrote in his book Scentsational Sex: The Secret to Using Aroma for Arousal that the scent of Good & Plenty candy, especially when mixed with a cucumber perfume, sexually arouses women.

12. Almonds

Almonds and pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, which helps combat itching and regulates the menstrual cycle.

13. Bananas

Ha! Not in that way (wink, wink). Sweet and delicious, bananas are also a good source of Vitamin B6 and C as well as manganese, potassium, biotin and copper.

14. Kimchi

Kimchi is another probiotic and it’s also safe for those who may be lactose intolerant and can’t eat yogurt. Kimchi helps maintain your vagina’s PH levels to slightly acidic. Another plus to probiotics? They help ward off bad bacteria as well, keeping infections down there at bay.

15. Broccoli

Broccoli may not be the hottest veggie on the block, but this study may change your mind. A study from 2007 found that women who ate foods rich in flavonoid kaempferol––like broccoli––saw their risk for ovarian cancer reduced by an incredible 40 percent!

According to Science, Your Girl Squad Can Help You Release More Oxytocin

As a lifelong introvert, I’ve always felt most comfortable hanging out with friends, boyfriends, coworkers, and pretty much anyone else one-on-one. (Intimate conversations: yes. Large group activities: resounding nope.) And though terms like #girlsquad stress me out — well, most group situations stress me out — I realize that I’ve obsessively relied on and returned to my core crew of girlfriends over the years.

Whether it was post-graduation 3 a.m. “what am I doing with my life?!” phone calls with my college friends, or humiliating 4th-grade crush-stalking incidents (no, not remotely weird that my best friend and I regularly showed up at my cute neighbor’s door to quiz him about what he’d be eating for dinner), my girlfriends have helped me stay sane and healthy over the years.

Is there a science behind female friendships?

“Research shows that women, more than men, need to maintain those connections. It increases serotonin and oxytocin, the bonding hormone,” says Alisa Ruby Bash, PsyD, LMFT. Studies at Stanford seem to confirm this, as did a UCLA study showing that in times of stress, women don’t just experience the drive toward fight or flight — they also release oxytocin. This hormonal surge can compel women to “tend and befriend,” a.k.a., to protect their kids (if they have them), but also to connect with other women.

Maintaining those bonds becomes even more important as we grow older, according to Dr. Bash. “We get busier, with more responsibilities,” she says. “It makes us feel nurtured and validated to hang out with friends we can be totally ourselves , minus the outside pressures.”

That’s absolutely the case for NYC-based Aly Walansky, 38, who notes that her girlfriends give her “no judgments,” just a sort of candid, no-holds-barred support that she doesn’t find anywhere else. “With guys, or my family, I have to temper things so as not to offend them or make things weird. But my girlfriends will tell me the truth, and that’s everything,” she explains.

Julia Antenucci, 25, of Rochester, also draws comfort from the uncomplicated acceptance her “squad” of college girlfriends offer her. Though they’ve scattered across the state since graduating, they make time to get together at least a few times a year, and their connection doesn’t wane.

“I’ve never felt as capable of being myself … than when I’m around these women,” Antenucci says via email. “It’s beautiful to know that no matter where I am in the world … there are these women that truly know me, love and support me. It’s a feeling of safety that I’ve never felt before, not even with my family.”

I know what she means.

Though it might sound cliché, for many single women like me, girlfriends really do become closer than family. You might see them more or confide in them more. As a long-time singleton lacking many of the traditional trappings of adulthood (no husband or kids, no 9-5 office job), I’ve often turned to my women friends for the companionship and emotional sustenance that others find in their partners and children.

Can girlfriends help cure feelings of loneliness?

While this wasn’t a conscious choice on my part (I’d still love to find a partner, thanks), I’m grateful to have the close friends I do. Especially because, in recent years, studies have repeatedly shown that loneliness can be lethal. According to the Indian Journal of Psychiatry, it’s the perception that one is alone — not the objective reality of how many connections someone has — that creates the most damage. This “pathological loneliness,” which can contribute to a variety of health problems, is growing more and more common.

The reasons for our growing social isolation are myriad, but technology, social media, and the perils of social comparison play a clear part.

“Even 10 years ago, people would go out to a coffee shop and actually talk to people,” Dr. Bash notes. “Nowadays in America, we’re so isolated. With social media, technology, and texting … people feel more alone. Even if they’re not physically alone, they’re addicted to constantly seeing what everyone else is doing.”

This dichotomy between our simultaneous hyperconnectedness — having the perpetual ability to check up on faraway friends — and many Americans’ rising sense of emotional alienation make our real-life, face-to-face friendships even more important to sustain.

“We have to make those friendships a top priority,” Dr. Bash says. “Schedule girls’ nights and lunches with friends! Do it ahead of time.”

Bash also suggests picking up the phone and having, you know, actual conversations instead of texting or chatting on Facebook. Of course, that doesn’t mean the Internet can’t be a tool to help you make or nurture friendships. On the contrary, many women build meaningful friendships through Facebook groups, neighborhood listservs, even various Tinder-style friend-finding apps, like Hey Vina and Peanut.

In fact, Julia Antenucci says that one of her biggest support systems is a New York City-based email listserv of women who regularly check in via email, as well as meeting up in person to plan activist events. Because Antenucci no longer lives in NYC, she only knows most of these women from behind a screen.

Yet “it’s been my lifeline and proverbial digital watering hole since I joined last year,” she says, noting, “Though I can’t speak to this as a cis white woman, I know similar online groups have been really helpful for minorities and queer individuals … as ‘girlsquads’ where solidarity might not otherwise be present.”

At the end of the day … do you need a #girlsquad?

Of course, not every friendship is the same, and while it’d be pretty cool if every woman in America had a legitimate girl-gang to confide in, vacation with, and plan world domination among, everyone is different.

Not every woman needs — or wants — a “squad.”

For some women, just a few close friends can be more than enough. Julia W., 33, who lives in California, says, “My ‘girl squad’ is small. I have these units of 2: My two best friends from high school. My 2 best friends from college. My 2 best friends from networking.”

What matters isn’t how you find your people, it’s that you do find them, or at least you try. “Be proactive,” Dr. Bash reminds. “Make that a priority.” And if you don’t feel satisfied with the number or quality of friendships in your life right now, it’s not too late to work to improve it.

“ we have acquaintances we’d like to be better friends with. If we make the first move and ask them to lunch or coffee, that can help,” Dr. Bash says.

Of course, you can also get out there and do more things. Take classes, join a group or a club, and go out on your own to fun local events. “ putting yourself in a situation where you will be interacting with people,” Bash notes.

And don’t let petty differences hinder you from reaching out to an old friend you may have diverged from a bit. As Dr. Bash says, “We need to try to be patient and empathetic with our friends, even if we’re in a different place. Maybe your friend has a new baby and isn’t as available; maybe you get frustrated. But remain supportive and available. Even as we go through different phases, we’re going to come back together later on.”

What exactly are the health benefits of apples?

You don’t have to be a nutritionist to realize that apples are healthy. Not only do they come in their own packaging – meaning you can eat the skin – they are also full of healthy nutrients. The healthy reason to eat them are endless but we have ranked the top 15 benefits of apples. (We also ranked the benefits of mushrooms, too!) So what makes apples so healthy? The nutritional profile. In 2004, the USDA scientists investigated over 100 foods to measure their antioxidant concentration per serving size. Two types of apples — Red Delicious and Granny Smith — ranked 12th and 13th respectively. Antioxidants are disease-fighting compounds. Scientists believe these compounds help prevent and repair oxidation damage that happens during normal cell activity. Apples are also full of a fibre called pectin — a medium-sized apple offers about four grams of fibre. Pectin is classed as a soluble, fermentable and viscous fibre, a combination that gives apples a huge list of health benefits.

1. Whiter, healthier teeth

Apples won’t replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria. This is the single thing that causes most teeth issues.

2. Avoid Alzheimer’s

A study on the benefits of apples shows that drinking apple juice could keep Alzheimer’s away and fight the effects of aging on the brain. The mice in the study that were fed an apple-enhanced diet showed higher levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and did better in maze tests than those on a regular diet.

3. Protect against Parkinson’s

Research has shown that people who eat fruits and other high-fibre foods (ahem, apples) may be protected against Parkinson’s disease, a condition characterized by a breakdown of the brain’s dopamine-producing nerve cells. Scientists have linked this to the free radical-fighting power of the antioxidants contained therein.

4. Curb all sorts of cancers

Scientists from the American Association for Cancer Research, among others, agree that the consumption of flavonol-rich apples could help reduce your risk of developing pancreatic cancer by up to 23 percent. Researchers at Cornell University have identified several compounds — triterpenoids — in apple peel that have potent anti-growth activities against cancer cells in the liver, colon and breast. Their earlier research found that extracts from whole apples can reduce the number and size of mammary tumours in rats. Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute in the U.S. has recommended a high fibre intake to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. These are the 10 cancer myths you need to stop believing stat.

5. Decrease your risk of diabetes

Women who eat apples — at least one a day — are 28 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who don’t eat apples. The reason this is a health benefit of apples is because this fruit is loaded with soluble fibre, the key to blunting blood sugar swings.

6. Reduce cholesterol

The soluble fibre found in apples binds with fats in the intestine, which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.

7. Get a healthier heart

An extensive body of research has linked high soluble fibre intake with a slower buildup of cholesterol-rich plaque in arteries. The phenolic compound found in apple skins also prevents the cholesterol that gets into your system from solidifying on your artery walls. When plaque builds inside your arteries, it reduces blood flow to your heart, leading to coronary artery disease. Ever wonder what sex does to your heart? You’re about to find out.

8. Prevent gallstones

This is one of the apple benefit is eye opening. Gallstones form when there’s too much cholesterol in your bile for it to remain as a liquid, so it solidifies. They are particularly prevalent in the obese. To prevent gallstones, doctors recommend a diet high in fibre (ahem, apples again) to help you control your weight and cholesterol levels.

9. Beat diarrhea and constipation

Whether you can’t go to the bathroom or you just can’t stop, fibre found in apples can help. Fibre can either pull water out of your colon to keep things moving along when you’re backed up, or absorb excess water from your stool to slow your bowels down. Did you know your poop can tell you lots about your health?

10. Neutralize irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome is characterized by constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain and bloating. To control these symptoms doctors recommend staying away from dairy and fatty foods. And people with IBS understand all too well how food can make symptoms worse, but learning about high-fibre foods they can eat (like apples) is key. Find out if you are wasting your money on the wrong probiotics.

11. Prevent hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are a swollen vein in the anal canal and while not life threatening, these veins can be very painful. They are caused by too much pressure in the pelvic and rectal areas. Part and parcel with controlling constipation, fibre can prevent you from straining too much when going to the bathroom and thereby help alleviate hemorrhoids. Here comes the benefits of apples again: apples are a great source of fibre which can help keep you regular. A healthy digestive system means a healthy body.

12. Control your weight

This is one of the health benefits of apples most of us are willing to get. Many health problems are associated with being overweight, among them heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. To manage weight and improve overall health, doctors recommend a diet rich in fibre. Foods high in fibre — like apples — will fill you up without costing you too many calories.

13. Detoxify your liver

Your liver is responsible for clearing these toxins out of your body. Many doctors are skeptical of fad detox diets, saying they have the potential to do more harm than good. Luckily, one of the best – and easiest – things you can eat to help detoxify your liver is fruits, like apples. This is everything you need to know before you even think about doing a detox.

14. Boost your immune system

Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin. Recent studies have found that quercetin can help boost and fortify your immune system, especially when you’re stressed out. That’s one of the most unexpected health benefits of apples.

15. Prevent cataracts

Though past studies have been divided on the issue, recent long-term studies suggest that people who have a diet rich in fruits that contain antioxidants — like apples — are 10 to 15 percent less likely to develop cataracts. So, as you can see, apple benefits are endless!

5 Benefits of Healthy Relationships

Why Healthy Relationships Are So Important

As humans, the relationships we form with other people are vital to our mental and emotional wellbeing, and really, our survival.
Humans have an inherent desire to be close to other people. To connect and build relationships. While a man stranded on an island, talking to a volleyball (you remember the movie!) isn’t necessarily “healthy,” his compulsion for company is. That’s because the fact of the matter is, healthy relationships (romantic relationships, friendships, familial relationships — they all count!) can help make for a healthier overall life. But what exactly does a healthy relationship look like?
A positive relationship can be shared between any two people who love, support, encourage and help each other practically as well as emotionally. In no particular order, people in healthy relationships tend to:

  • Listen to each other
  • Communicate openly and without judgment
  • Trust and respect each other
  • Consistently make time for each other
  • Remember details about each other’s lives
  • Engage in healthy activities together

And while you don’t have to be romantically involved to enjoy the benefits of a healthy relationship, there are various studies on the positive effects a healthy romantic relationship can have on your health. Here are a couple benefits of healthy relationships. Some are specific to romantic relationships, and others aren’t.

Less Stress

Being in a committed relationship is linked to less production of cortisol, a stress hormone. This suggests that married or paired people are less responsive to psychological stress, and that the social and emotional support that comes with having a partner can be a great buffer against stress. There’s even evidence to suggest that couples who cohabitate are happier than those that don’t.

Better Healing

Whether it’s having someone there to remind you to take your medicine, or having a partner to help take your mind off the pain, research suggests married people who have undergone heart surgery are three times more likely to survive the first three months after surgery than single patients. Married patients also reported feeling more confident about their ability to handle post-surgery pain and were less worried about the surgery in general. A little emotional support can go a long way toward helping a person recover from a procedure or illness.

Healthier Behaviors

Healthy relationships set the perfect tone for an overall healthy lifestyle. If your spouse, friends or other loved ones encourage eating a healthy diet, exercising, not smoking, etc., you’re likely to follow in their footsteps. It’s a lot easier to take on healthy behaviors when you surround yourself with people who are doing the same.

Greater Sense of Purpose

It’s natural for humans to want to feel needed, and like they’re part of something bigger. Many people strive to feel like they’re doing something good for someone else, and improving the world in some way. Being in a loving relationship, no matter what kind, can give a person a sense of well-being and purpose. In fact, it’s possible that having a sense of purpose can actually add years to your life.

Longer Life

Speaking of adding years onto your life, research suggests that having healthy social relationships makes a bigger impact on avoiding early death than taking blood pressure medication or being exposed to air pollution. One study even suggests that a lack of social relationships has the same effect on health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
Everyone is unique and has their own needs and desires when it comes to relationships, handling stress and living a healthy, meaningful life. If you’re the type of person who enjoys being alone, that’s okay too, but attempting to make a couple close relationships could mean noticeable benefits to your mental and physical health.
Sometimes having at least one good friend (or trusted co-worker, therapist or counselor) to help walk you through issues like social anxiety or depression can end up being more than worth it. It might be difficult, but it also might be exactly what you need. Even just having one or two strong, healthy relationships in your life can have a positive effect on health.
